debate between mr. obama and mr. romney is behind us. the president is on his own. just weeks ago at the democratic convention he had a nice assist from former president bill clinton. bill clinton has weighed in on this issue. again, it is one thing for you and me to talk about. when bill clinton says something, people start to pay attention. he has weighed in on this and said something i want you to unpack. he has argued that the republicans what the electorate in 2012 to look like the 2010 electorate and not like the 2008 electorate. explain what he meant by thtat. >> if you look at the 2008 electorate, it was a the per se electric, a denver electorate. and it signaled a democrat change in the country and what the electorate will look like going forward in 2016 and beyond. that is why i called the coalition of the ascendant. if you look at 2010, it was an electorate that was older and more conservative. that is why republicans did so well in 2010 and not so well in 2008. clinton said this is not rocket science, that what republicans want to do is they want to make the 2012 elect
, wednesday, the first of these four debates, three between mr. romney and mr. obama. tomorrow is the first that we will see them on the same stage. in advance of that debate tomorrow night, yesterday in "the wall street journal" mr. romney had a piece. the piece was titled "a new course for the middle east," but he raises some domestic issues, . "in recent years, president obama has allowed our leadership to atrophy. our economy is stuck in a recovery that is clearly deserves the name. our national debt has risen to record levels. our military tested by a decade of war is facing cuts based to that -- thanks to the budgetary games played by the white house. our values have been misunderstood by a president who thinks that weakness will win favor with our adversaries. by failing to maintain the elements of our influence and by stepping away from our allies, president obama has heightened the prospect of conflict and instability. he does not understand that an american policy that lets result can provoke a precedent and encouraged this order." two paris. let me take them one at a time. in the

just as hard in the second term. >> governor romney, your two- minute closing. >> thank you, jim, mr. president, and thank you for tuning in this evening. this is an important election and i'm concerned about america. i'm concerned about the direction america has been taking over the last four years. i know this is bigger than an election about the two of us as individuals. it's bigger than our respective parties. it's an election about the course of america. what kind of america do you want to have yourself and for your children. there are really two different very -- two very different paths that we began speaking about this evening and over the course of this month were going to have two more presidential debates and vice-presidential debate. but they lead in different directions. it's not just looking to our words that yet to take in evidence of where you go. but the record. with incomes going down the prices going up, there's a middle-class squeeze. of it and comes up again. you will see -- i will help create 12 million new jobs in this country with rising incomes. if the presid
. >> everyone's blaming the president so it might be his fault. >> rose: thank you, mr. dickerson. i'll see you tomorrow morning. >> thank you charlie. >> rose: let me bring you back in here. so if you look at what was said tonight, was it primarily that romney was effective in delivering his message and it seems so in contrast to what we have known of him that is in the end the story? >> yes. he was effective because barack obama passed up opportunity after opportunity to really challenge him. and i think he presented effectively but he could have had problems if obama had been sharper. and charlie, i'm not, they're putting out this line already that look the president wanted to be laid back, he didn't want to be confrontational. somebody mentioned earlier that he really has disdain for romney which is true. and he didn't want to show that. well, he overreacted, shall we say charitably because as one of the great men of america today, davey johnson the manager of the washington nationals have said you've got to attack attack attack and i think that's fundamentally true whether it's baseball o
